Introduction to Art making in Nature: creating a therapeutic dialogue
Friday 7th August 2020 ... 2pm – 4pm
A two-hour session exploring how we can facilitate a deeper connection with nature using the creative potential that exists in all of us. Art making in this way as a listening response can be used for our own personal journey or working therapeutically with others. More than the finished piece of work it is to experience the process of making, reconnecting with the earth and with ourselves. The workshop will include meditation and drawing. Your art is personal exploration and reflective so there will be no expectation to share it unless you choose to do so. This course is experiential and suitable for anyone who wants to introduce art into their therapy work outdoors, but it is also open to anyone wanting to join out of interest or for personal growth. It is not, however, therapy.'
Please bring to the session (please do not buy anything but use what you find at home):
A selection of pens/pencils
2/3 natural found objects (a stone, leaf, feather, twig etc)
